Tech Salons

Ever-evolving technologies have the potential of enabling the United Nations to respond quickly and effectively to global challenges when they arise. We believe it is critically important to reflect on the potential these cutting-edge technologies have to enable the work of Organization and to make the world a better place for all.

Tech Salons is a series of events focusing on important technologies and their impact on the UN, sustainable development and the world. These events are open and free to attend for anyone, and feature experts from academia and private and public sectors. Events are held regularly and presented in different formats—panel discussions, lectures, interviews or other. Most events will have an opportunity for Q&A or public discussion at the end.
